Perhaps the most difficult case ever for packagers: They do all the things that make packaging a nightmare:

* Build the tool with itself
* Circular dependencies: Gradle needs to build which needs Gradle to build...
* Depend on snapshots to build releases, but then they don't keep a way to reproduce the snapshot releases
* Java-style bundling of all dependencies
* Hidden proprietary depends

thanks ebourg for keeping on!

It would help if people showed their interest on the issues there. It can be just a 👍 or even better, post about your use cases

@eighthave That sounds like a rather fragile build tool that can't be built without somoene else's prebuilt binary. Ouch.
